HeHe Ilike that Brian! I've got 7 conifers planted now and, touch wood they all seem to be doing OK. BTW My mate is a Bonzai Master (whatever that is) and he says now is the time to go for a walk in the woods looking for those miniature Oak tress that have grown from dropped acorns. Dig them up carefully, peel away the soil and look for the tap root (the biggest thickest root). Cut this off and tease out the small roots, trimming if neccessary, plant in rich soil and soon you will have a fine miniature oak tree that even gives tiny acorns. The best trees for this are any of the varieties of Oak and Ash.
